"BUSHMAN" Dwight Duncan,Jamaica in 1973, he was raised as a Rastafarian.As a teenager he worked as a selector under the name Junior Melody (sometimes Junior Buckley) for the Black Star Line sound-system.BUSHMAN hitch-hiked to Kingston, and during an impromptu game of football at Arrows Dub plate studio he met Steely & Clevie. After telling them that he was a singer, they invited him to Studio 2000, where he recorded his first tracks "Grow Your Natty", which was followed by the hit "Call The Hearse". With talks of an album Steely wished to change the name Junior Melody to Bushman. 'Bushman' is an African name for 'Medicine Man'. "Call The Hearse" became a big hit in Jamaica, and was followed by "Rude Boy Life" and his debut album, Nyah Man Chant (1997). Nyah Man Chant was described in The Rough Guide to Reggae as "as good an example of modern cultural singing as you could hope to find."Bushman them moved on to work with King Jammy, who produced his next two albums - Total Commitment, which collected most of the early singles he recorded for the producer,[3] and Higher Ground. A Better Place was the fourth album from Bushman. For this album Bushman teamed up with the UK-based Stingray team.
